Got some good experience, but some office drama
Crisis Intervention Counselor (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 25, 2012
Pros: good compensation, work felt useful, good trainings
Cons: inconsistency in policies, stressful, funding issues (government's fault!)
I felt like I did a lot of good while working there, and we got some great training in various subjects. We were encouraged to get involved on committees and in large projects.

But for the most part, staff had their hearts in the right place and tried their best. – less
